Fake Ryan Gosling Fools Fans (VIDEO)

Imagine the scene. You're in Detroit - the city where Ryan Gosling just happens to be filming his directorial debut 'How to Catch A Monster'.

You turn a corner and... there's Ryan Gosling. Walking down the street.

Click play on the video above to see how the 'Lyin' Gosling' prank worked out.
